Music: Classical
Enjoy the music of iconic Baroque and Classic era composers Franz Josef Haydn and George Frideric Handel in the warm and intimate surroundings of Ryerson United Church in Kerrisdale. Handel’s rousing Dixit Dominus and Coronation Anthem Let Thy Hand be Strengthened and Haydn’s vivacious Missa Sancti Nicolai are the centrepieces of this program, but there are bonus works, too: the youthful Mozart’s ravishing Laudate Dominum and the brooding Tenebrae factae sunt by Haydn’s younger brother, Michael. We are joined by members of the Vancouver Chamber Orchestra and - for the finale - singers from local college and university music departments participating in this year’s Focus! Professional Development Program.

Adults $30, Sr/St $25.50, Student Rush (at door) $10
